10 Things We Love to Eat and Drink in Italy

Actually this perfect short film is entitled 10 things We Love About Italy and it hits the mark.  The Perennial Plate takes us on a journey through the Italy as they explore what they say is their most favorite things.  It’s hard not to agree.  Pasta, pizza, espresso and olive oil are to name a few.  Our favorite?  Has to be the gelato.  Pick your own favorite and we dare you not to be hungry!  (via Vimeo)

Hamburger Fischmarkt in Stuttgart

In Stuttgart, Germany one can find many different types of food festivals. This time of year, the folks in northern Germany come a little south and host the Hamburger Fischmarkt right in Stuttgart. For over 20 years they bring with them the finest fish from pike to shrimp to herring and even some sailor’s stew. With the weather nice outside and a Saturday you can find much of the city downtown to experience this fun and lively festival.

Fruit Typography by Garret Steider

Garret Steider has created a fun and what seems to be a real time-consuming project he calls Typefruitography. Garret has managed to produce ever letter of the alphabet using fruits or almost all fruits (but close enough). He painstakingly carved out both upper and lower case letters and we love it.  We picked out our favorite letters and do apologize for duplicating the A’s… but you can’t spell chaQula without two apples!
